This Pharaoh is checking out the muscular brawn on her barbarian mercenary’s arms. And yes, she has seductive intentions with him.
There is a story behind these two characters. The guy is Gunthar Wolfsclan, a mercenary from the tundras of the far north, whereas the chick is Queen Kasekhet of Ekhaptu. They’ve developed a bond that cuts through the rift in class between them, but someone in her administration is very suspicious of the whole affair. It’s going to be a sort of “sword & sorcery” tale in the tradition of Robert E. Howard’s stories about Conan the Barbarian.
